Headless CMS

Empower your team to build content-powered apps faster together

What is a Headless CMS?

A headless CMS is composed of two things:

  1. A web dashboard to create content and
  2. An API to deliver content to any website or app

Unlike a traditional installed CMS, a headless CMS does not come with a coupled UI layer, giving you more freedom with how and where you deliver your content.

A cloud-hosted headless CMS frees you up even further by eliminating CMS infrastructure maintenance. This gives you more time to create great content and user experiences, allowing you to ship to market faster.

"Really like Cosmic. Build your content in a CMS and get a REST or GraphQL API immediately! Slick tool to make dev quicker! Even has Gatsby Preview so you can check out changes before publishing."
Chris Sevilleja, Scotch.io
"The headless CMS we chose had to tick a lot of boxes. At the end of the day, though, it needed to be easy for our external writers to use. We recorded a quick screencast video internally showing how to set up a piece of content, sent that out to our team, and I haven’t had a question from any of our writers since."
Katie Prowd, Co-Founder of Hypometer Technologies
"Cosmic JS allowed us to easily integrate a secure and fast back-end API into our React app. Cosmic fit our needs with its simple web-based dashboard so that members of our marketing team can create, edit, and delete new content on the fly. Our team has been enjoying the ease of use with the new system."
Owen Liversidge, Lead Developer, Tripwire Interactive
"We use Cosmic JS buckets for each of our mobile game landing pages. While our API and storage usage is low, the number of buckets we need is high, which makes the new Clusters Feature a perfect solution for our company use cases. It allows us to have a single consolidated invoice, with an overall API and data-limit, but up to 35 buckets for our use."
Jessica Chappell, Big Fish Games
"Leveraging the Cosmic JS GraphQL API allows for easy updates to our news and blog, while keeping payloads small and fast. Integration with Cosmic JS could not be easier thanks to their great support. We look forward to developing more features on the platform."
Dustin Brink, Derive Systems
